Why is my repository in "read-only" mode?
When a repository is in 'read-only' mode, it means that nothing can be written to the repository.
There are a few reasons why a repository is in 'read-only' mode:
If a Workspace is on the free plan, this workspace is limited to 5 users. If the number of user with access to this workspace exceed the limit, all private repositories in this workspace will automatically be set to 'read-only' mode. The workspace owner will need to remove excess users or update their workspace plan to be able to add more users. For more information, see Plans and billing.
We are upgrading our storage segments and temporarily can't accept new data.
We are rolling out changes that temporarily require no new writes.
- Performing maintenance on the repository, such as running the garbage collector (GC) to clean up dangling commits and reducing the size of the repository.
Read-only mode usually only lasts for a few minutes, so if your repository has been marked read-only, try it again in a little while.
